A lovely villa hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the busy town of Verona. Although the hotel is easy to find on google maps, we still managed to drive past the cute little road that lead us to the property. The staff at the hotel was warm and welcoming. They, especially the owner consistently ensured we were feeling at home at all times. Luca was always present with a big smile during dinner and at breakfast. The dinner was exceptional and a must when staying here. I had the risotto and a double chocolate with caramel stub for dessert - although I’m allergic to dairy, it was worth the stomach ache. The breakfast buffet was literally sweet, consisting of bread and baked goods. They also had yoghurt, fruit, cheeses, eggs and gluten free choices. Our Deluxe suite was beautifully furnished and I can’t complain about anything other than the annoying fly that snuck into our room. Thank you for the excellent service! And especially to Stefano for the prompt response.
We spent four nights here. The location is perfect for both day trips to Verona (ugh, the crowds!) and to the lovely towns along Lake Garda (ugh, again, the crowds). We had a suite on the first floor, looking out over the gardens and the vineyards beyond and awoke each morning to the sound of bird call. Idyllic? Yes, indeed. Our suite, which had attic windows and severely sloping ceilings, was eclectically furnished, with a huge king-size bed with a red velvet and gold headboard (Eesch!) and a chaise lounge near the one window. The sitting room had a couch, a small side table, a desk and chair, and a bathtub (yes, a bathtub). The bath was large but had a rainfall shower which I personally dislike with a passion. There is no way to escape the downpour, and the flimsy shower curtain was not effective in keeping water from spilling out all over the bath floor. A glass door was really required. The staff at the hotel is first rate and five star. The elegant gentleman at the front desk was simply wonderful and had excellent suggestions for our day trips, even where to park. The waitstaff was phenomenal, especially Luca, who was present at breakfast, all day, and at dinner and never seemed to sleep, yet greeted us with a huge smile each morning and evening. His demeanor and charm enhanced our stay. The breakfast buffet was exceptional; lovely breads, glorious baked goods, magnificent cheeses, fruit, yogurt, gluten-fee choices and eggs. The grounds are not what we have come to expect from a five-star establishment and looked in need of a good gardener. Perhaps it is better tended later in the season? And what was with the huge red ceramic alligator by the pool? It looked so out of place in the beautiful rustic setting. Luckily, it was too cold to swim so we could mostly avoid the odd alligator. All in all, we had a lovely visit and would return.
Do not miss this location....what a perfect experience you will have. Every staff member is warm and friendly so you feel "at home". We were given great information about surrounding area points of interests. You will not be disappointed!!
Have been at Villa del Quar several times now (it's a perfect base for visiting the opera festival in Verona) and are always very happy with our stay! Great food, serene location, lovely individually appointed rooms and suites. And the stuff always go out of their way to make you feel at home.
We stayed at Villa del Quar last week and we were not disappointed. All the staff were very helpful and it is nice that the owner is much in evidence making sure that we were happy - it was as if we were staying in his home which we were in a way because he lives in a villa in the grounds! He is passionate about the garden and it is a very peaceful place to be. Our room was nicely furnished and a lot of thought had gone into its decoration. The staff on the reception desk were particularly helpful in making suggestions about where we should visit and we were directed to go, amongst other places to the Ponte di Veja which is a natural prehistoric bridge and features in some of Mantegna's paintings. The weather was perfect and we had an excellent trip to Lake Garda as well. Thank you very much for making us feel so welcome.
Stayed two nights on a cycling trip. Absolutely beautiful hotel! My room was nice sized, small shower, but larger bathroom. Even had a sky light in my room which added much light, but could also be closed off. The pool is wonderful - with good service and snacks/wine/drinks. Ate dinner at the restaurant and enjoyed it very much. Good food and excellent service. Breakfasts were standard, nothing super special, but the dining area is so light and airy it makes everything special. The staff were very helpful if a bit busy. Highly recommend this as a nice retreat from the city.
Our room was situated on the upper level overlooking the lobby. It was a sumptous 2 room suite, with a living room / work area separate from the bedroom and en-suite bath. Despite it's location, we had no issues with noise coming from the lobby nor the adjacent restuarant area. The furnishings were certainly above average, but not opulent. Everything (ie, light fixtures, bathroom, television etc) worked as expected. The only functional issue was the erratic nature of the airconditioning . . . it seemed that the thermostat was off-kilter and would only activate cooling at unpredictable intervals. We had dinner at the restaurant (one night). The food and service was above average. My wife very much liked the carrot and leek appetizer. However, the salmon first course was unfortunately overdone and dry. The staff overall (especially the front-desk) were very helpful and attentive to our needs.
We’re wine lovers, and big fans of the Valpolicella region. So when we decided to pay a visit and do some wine tasting, Hotel Villa del Quar came up and it’s indeed the absolutely ideal place to serve as a base for doing wine touring in this wonderful part of Italy. It’s also very close to Verona (15-30 minute drive to Verona), although if that’s the main focus of your visit you’ll be better off just staying in Verona, otherwise you’ll either have to take a taxi every time you want to go there, or drive – which besides the caveats of driving in Italy involves parking in Verona which is not easy by any means. Besides the great location, the complex is anchored by a beautiful main building, where the rooms and suites are. They are very typically Italian – not super fancy by any means, but well appointed, spacious and well maintained. There are also nice grounds, including a nice pool, a small shop, etc. Service is spectacular – very personal (the small size of the complex helps). The Hotel Manager himself helped us with picking restaurants for our dinners, and making reservations, and both choices were amazing. The onsite restaurant is also quite good – furthermore the breakfast buffet is very typical Italian and very good. Finally – there’s a well-stocked bar, if you need a nighcap after a day of wine tasting… The complex includes vines, and they do make their own wine – which is actually quite good. So – highly recommend it.
There are some very positive things about this small hotel. Some of the staff are very helpful and friendly indeed: the front desk staff, the woman that looks after the pool and some of the waiters were delightful. The building itself is beautiful and has been well restored. There is a good sized pool. However there is one huge negative and a number of other minuses as well. The huge negative is the frankly appalling food. It is hard to believe that this is part of the Relais and Chateaux brand that pride themselves on cuisine. For our first lunch I ordered a caprese salad which was fine, followed by a tuna sandwich which was just dreadful. Two slices of white sliced bread with a tin of tuna splattered all over it. Frankly it was embarrassing. That evening we ate in the garden and I had the duck which was inedible. The following evening we ate at the hotel again (there was a bad storm and we didn’t want to go into Verona) and I had a chocolate pudding which was awful. My partner had the tuna which was inedible. Everything we ate veered between the adequate to the ghastly. We were also appalled by the sommelier the first evening who when asked for a recommendation around the 100-150 euro mark repeatedly tried to persuade us to order one for 400 euro. The other minuses: - there is a small fitness room (but which has no functioning aircon) - we had a junior suite (but it was on the second floor and so is in the eaves and so consequently very dark) -there is a welcome gift (but it is a single small bottle of still water and a few dry biscuits) - there are lovely gardens (but you are not that far from the main road) This could (and should be) so much better. The first thing to do would be to hire a new chef.
Take care of location. Bus is ½ hour from the hotel and no bus on Sunday. Price and quality is not OK. The food and wine is very expensive and not very good. The garden is not romantic. The hotel has not shuttlebus to Verona.
